Thanks to the excel spreadsheet posted here, I set up 2 banks. After shooting several in bank A and Bank B, (different configurations) I noticed bank B at 100% crop were significantly better, than bank A. (focus, sharper especially at the edges, could see the difference without cropping, bank A softer throughout the entire image) So I changed all the settings in Bank A to match bank B. Same results. I double checked settings. My testing was done real life, no charts. 800 on a tripod, mup, and remote. Using Nikon 24-85. Tried 3 focus ranges , 24, 50 an 70. All the same result. B blows away A. Any thoughts? Have not set up C or D, till I figure out what is going on.

This may be obvious, but if you are seeing significantly better shots taken using bank B, then there must still be something that is set differently between A and B.

Why not reset everything to the default settings and start again from there?

According to page 270 of the manual the answer is yes.

Menu button > Shooting menu > Shooting menu bank > From the list A/B/C/D highlight the bank you want to reset > Press the delete (rubbish bin / format) button to left of viewfinder eyepiece.

Bank defaults are on page 405-6.
